State of the Hobby – Hanigus Lodge #47 R3

An auction recently ended for an old tough issue from New York State. Hanigus Lodge #47 merged with Chappegat Lodge #15 to form Mide Lodge #15 in 1957. They never issued a flap, so even their odd shapes command a premium price.

There was just a single bidder who knew what he wanted and who took the patch down for the minimum of $ 899.99

This beautiful standing chipmunk pin is from Hanigus Lodge 47 of Mt. Vernon, New York. It is has the “Hood” hallmark and “XX” (20 karat gold) and dates to the 1930s. It is the only know example of this totem in gold. There are two known examples in silver, one is Hood and dates to the early 1940s from Hanigus Lodge (in my collection) and the other is J.E. Caldwell and dates to the 1950s and was used by Kamargo Lodge.
